Hey gents. I’m having a hard time with my rifle not showing any pressure signs when I feel like it should as I’m getting up there in my ladder tests. I can’t use quickload because I don’t have a windows computer and it doesn’t seem to be compatible with Apple products.

Is there an alternative to accurately calculating pressures? I’m using RL-16 and Hornady 147 ELDM and I don’t know if either of these relatively newer products is even in quickload.

Here’s my recipie so far:

Peterson SRP 6.5 creedmoor brass. They weigh avg of 169.1 grn and water capacity is avg 50.6 grn.

Hornady 147 ELDM

RL-16 doing a ladder test Jumping .3 grn at a time from 39.9grn to 42.1 grn. 42.1 was avg of 2559 FPS out of my proof carbon 16.5 inch barrel. Primers are CCI 400.

No ejector marks of any kind. All my primers look exactly the same. Any advice? 2559 avg wirh a high of 2572 seems really high for a 147 out of a 16.5 inch 6.5 creedmoor. The barrel has exactly 68 rounds. The 2572 was number 68.
